    I read a few posts about dealers price gouging and others that got a great deal. Please list your options (deluxe, premium, interior upgrade, Shaker 1000, etc.) and your total purchase price before T,T, & T.

    I got a good price.

    I ordered a GT Deluxe, with just the interior upgrade package, and am paying $25,495, which is MSRP. I was happy with that, seeing as I have heard of other paying more than this. Most dealers were charging $1500 over MSRP. Hope this helps you.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm hoping to get a GT deluxe with the IUP and the Shaker 1000 as my only upgrades. I came up with $24,716 using the Buyer's Offer Spreadsheet on CarBuyingTips.com and the pricing sheet I found on Brad's site. I haven't talked price with any dealers yet as I'm waiting for a test drive first. Only one '05 GT made it to a local lot and it sold within hours. It's looks like I may have to wait a while to get the deal I want.

    2005 GT

    I ordered mine through the military overseas sales program. Got a GT, with leather, IUP, shaker 1000, upgraded wheels, 5 speed, side airbags, alarm. ect, will be paying $27,295.00. Delivery in Dec. MSRP $29,921.00 not too bad, just over invoice. Not a bad perk for deploying to Iraq for a year. :cheers:

    Too bad AAFES doesn't have a program here in the states. I'm sure there's a law preventing them from doing so, otherwise I think they would.

    well i havent gotten ours yet! but i just checked the ford dealer where we know the fleet manager and YAY to my dismay they have a black/at/gt waiting =) i dont kow msrp but most likely i dont need it,we might just get it loaded to the teeth with options and trade in the SC(430) for it! wooo! :banana: or we may just buy it flat out....but that would mean no more space in the already tight garage =(

    I was offered an internet pre-order discount of 1k from a local dealer, or he said i could take 500 bucks off anything that they have on the lot. Would you consider the 1k discount a good deal or should i wait till april/may for larger discounts?

    The price for a new 05 GT in the NL

    is currently USD 61,750. I don't want to hear any of you whine about getting price gouged because the dealer wants $30,000 for a fully loaded GT. Here in Europe, I would not say I am getting gouged as much as I am getting flipped over and done dry.

    Joe Trev, that's what I got... 1k off MSRP which isn't to bad, considering the markup everyone is talking about.

    /edit PS look at my garage for my order

    I don't think you will see any rebates on the 05 Mustang, even when the 06's are due out for production. These will be to hot of cars and dealers won't have a problem selling them without a rebate

    Not a bad perk? For deploying to Iraq, they should give you one for nothing!
    My hats off to all men and women who serve!

    A lot of new members here. Welcome! I noticed some people buying over the internet. What are some good sites to start with? I've got to believe that Ford will have a rebate sometime within the next 6-8 months for this car. How long did it take for Mustang rebates after the '04 release?
